Agreed, this show is an overlooked gem!!! I guess it lives in the shadow of the big three night run at Nassau, which is indeed great, but yes, 4/2/90 is SERIOUS.

I was at this one. It was a fun time. I did not know it was the last time for a "Death don't have no mercy"...

The Omni shows weren't like the Fox... oranges and apples ... you can't beat the Fox Atlanta for a venue... but I miss the Omni and its less than great acoustics because it was a much friendlier place than its sterile, corporate Phillips Arena replacement. I would have to really want to see someone bad to put up with going there for music...

I'll back you up. Did the Dead ever play a bad show in Atlanta? I saw them at the Omni in '74, and any show I've ever heard from the fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta has been top shelf. Southern audiences are great audiences by and large. Wish they had played the South more back when I lived there.

"btownsparky:" ...you don't need anybody to validate what you think and how you feel about any show. If you consider it an "all-time" show, then it's an "all-time" show.

So, yes, it is an "all-time" show. I look forward to listening to it. Thanks for the recommendation.
